Dubai, UAE, 18 April 2012: Stanford Marine, a leading regional marine business headquartered in Dubai, today announced the successful completion of its newbuild program and delivery of its 10th high-spec Offshore Support Vessel. The completion of the program concludes a strategic growth initiative established by Stanford Marine which has increased the fleet value by US$ 200 million and resulted in a doubling of revenue and EBITDA.

The vessels in the newbuild program which include 2 deep water 87m large platform supply vessels (PSVs), 2 mid size 70m PSVs, and 6 mid size 58m PSVs were successfully placed on medium to long-term charters in the Middle East, South East Asia and East Africa, further augmenting the company’s customer base.
